Wooden Ball Plant Stand DIY

I’m certainly no stranger to plants in the house and I’m always on the lookout for cute pots and large plant stands. While it’s great to have those bigger plant stands to elevate plants, having some smaller tabletop stands also help to add more personality to your plant and offset a more plain planter as well. I saw some wooden craft balls in my DIY supplies and thought they would be perfect for creating a simple but textural low level plant stand. Ready to make your own?Supplies:
8″ wooden circle
2″ wooden knobs (8 of them)
-acrylic paint and brush
-wood glue
wooden skewers (optional)
Paint your wooden circle and wooden knobs the color of your choice. It can be a little awkward to paint round balls so it really helps to put them on skewers first and hold the skewer while you turn the ball to paint it. I stuck them into a cardboard box while they dried in between coats.Place your painted knobs on the underside of your painted circle, evenly spaced, with the knobs hanging over the outside edge just a bit. Use your glue to attach your knobs in place. That’s it! Now you’re ready to display your plants!Isn’t it sooo fun?! It’s really such a simple process to make, but it has such a whimsical look to it. You could also use smaller knobs (and more of them) to create more of a “string of pearls” look around the edge, but I think this larger size is fun too. That gold planter is perfect to sit on top of this stand but I think the pastel lavender would be so pretty with either this gold and white or textured dot planter as well. Lord knows that I have enough plants around the house, but I think whoever gets to sit on this one will feel pretty special! xo. Laura
